A still white wine from the Chianti, Tuscany region of Italy.

Rich and deep. Bread crust & wax.

Tasting Notes

Batàr 2017 from Querciabella Estate has a deep golden colour.

On the nose it’s complex and rich with candied lemon, fresh almond bread crust and wax notes. It has also a vegetal note with bay leaf and oregano. It’s sapid, umami almost.

The mouth is round, mineral and sapid. There are notes of bitter almond and a fresh touch with citrus zest.

The finish is long.

Green-skinned grape variety used in wine production

Chardonnay is a grape variety with a green skin that is used to make white wine. The grape variety originated in eastern France’s Burgundy wine region, but it is now grown all over the world, from England to New Zealand. Growing Chardonnay is seen as a rite of passage for new and emerging wine regions, as well as an easy entry into the international wine market.
